Question about squeaks...

1828 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  JCS05Rubi
This is my first Jeep so I am not used to how they should sound, but every time I step on and release the clutch, step on and release the brakes, shift gears, hit bumps, etc... it squeaks. It just started over the weekend. My Jeep only has 2,300 miles on it. Is this a normal noise that I should expect and get used to or should I take it to the dealership and have them take a look at it?

Hmm I guess I should take it up then. This is the third time in less than 2,300 miles. 1st time the turn signal switch was bad at about 50 miles 2nd Rotors warped about 1000 miles, had not driven on any hills, now this. I think I got a bad Jeep:(
Thanks for the responses. I will take it in just to make sure it's nothing major and to have everything greased.
Yeah when I get up to ~25 it doesn't seem to do it. I am taking it up early next week, I will let you know what they told me.
I figured out what it was. It was my side steps. I guess they were too tight against the bushings and they were squeaking. I loosened them up and the driverside is fine but the passenger side still squeaks. I guess I will have to deal with it until I can find a torque wrench to use, or take them off all together. I really don't need them at the moment, just there for looks.
